    I dont trust the dvd drive of laptop. Theres some loose connection. It might work sometime and might not the other time...


    Now i do have an external (USB) dvd burner.


    I need to format my laptop HD and reinstall XP. Is there a way i can do that without using my laptop Dvd drive?

    Can i use my external DVD Burner as a first boot device and use it for installing windows XP after formatting the HD ?

    If so, kindly guide me how to do it?

    thanks and regards.
